for all i'm worth

for all i'm worth

A Poem by Lydia Shutter

“remembering miro” by ivan khokhlov

 

 

 

i chase a run on sentence
around the corner of a concept
straight into the arms of a vacuum
(and we all know nature abhors
a vacuum)
                  nonsensical
                              yet ample
particles of cosmic “schmutz”
swarm my head
sucking out self ridicule
a tasty treat savored

by only the true connoisseur
so push the pedals of propriety
                                     get back jack!
pull the trigger on your mirth
a new day is dawning
gonna enjoy it
for all i’m worth

Nicely done. I love the euphemisms that you have here and how it is like a turning point in the road for you, I actually had to read it twice because the first part of the poem gave me the vision of someone being with some type of gypsy or other type of Divination practitioner and you were there to hear about your future. The second part sounded like a response to what the person said. As I read the poem again I still in visioned the same thing.... I think this teaches me to wake up before reading. However, I really enjoyed the poem and thank you for sharing.

You have the ability to fill in the vacuum with your delicate romance or word pictures.

How you put words together and use your mind to play games is always my treat in reading you, short and sharp in generous amount. Each day is a new beginning and I do hope you enjoy each rising with another write... Write...Write!

Lydi, you words run crazy around the inner walls of my mind. I love how this comes across, fun whimsical, a bit chaotic and filled with smiles and a happy ending.. One part though...oh well, Jack is a common name. :)
